The 'Description of Content' is not correct. I lived on Warrakoo from many years (50s, 60s and 70s), being born in Wentworth. Warrakoo Station is in NSW on the Murray River about 80km by road from the Darling River. The Murray is some hundreds of metres from the location and cannot be seen from the angle of this photo which from top to bottom is roughly east/west, the river is to the south or right of the picture.
